I am using a Netgear WGR614 wireless router connected to Woosh ISP, and things have been perfectly fine for some time.

However, recently I discovered that I cannot access the local radio station's web site ( ... the browser indicator gets to about green band 4 or 5 then the standard "cannot display the web page" message. I can ping the site, and a tracert indicates a "time out" immediately after the Woosh server, but then continues the hops until the correct destination.

If I disconnect the router/ethernet connection and connect the Woosh modem directly (USB) to my PC, then all is well in cyberland, and the web site in question comes up perfectly !

I do not have any blocks or restrictions set either in the browser or router, so I am at a loss to understand what is going on.

Any views or opinion would be most welcome.

UPDATE: Problem solved ... even though PPPoE MTU rate is 1492bytes, it seems that using Woosh requires a lower rate particulalrly for very heavy graphic-laden sites. Dropped router MTU setting to 1468 and site comes up like a rocket! .
